Basic set update 2.4 and Halflings set update 2.2
February 01, 2021By Jan KovaříkUpdates
These updates are both (Basic set and Halflings set as well) rather "technical", as most of the new icons were made upon on requests I received during the last year. Some of them should be already part of the previous update, but I wasn't able to finalize them in time. So, in the dry language of numbers, with 30 new icons it's 1060+ icons for Basic set and 30 new icons in Halflings set make a nice equal number of 300+ icons.

Last year, the global pandemic changed our day-to-day lives in ways and degree nobody expected. Lockdowns, quarantines and even restrictions of personal gatherings, this affected more or less all of us.

The way people consume content on the web has shifted during the last decade. As YouTube is now the second largest search engine (crazy right?), video is something you can't ignore.
The first version of the Weather set
It almost seems like the demand for apps showing various weather conditions is never ending and it kind of makes sense, as depending on the weather, we often plan our whole day ahead. Almost everybody have some kind of weather app installed on their phone or desktop computer. So naturally, I've been getting a lot of requests for weather icons during the last few years and now I finally had some time to create them.
Basic set update 2.3
February 18, 2020By Jan KovaříkUpdates
1030+ icons in total make the Basic set the biggest GLYPHICONS icon pack ever. I know it's obvious and that the Basic set has always been the biggest. It may sound a bit like when new iPhones are introduced – with a better display, thinner body and better battery, it's the best iPhone ever made – of course it is! Nobody would buy a new, but slightly worse iPhone :). But this is not an iPhone, this is different.
The first version of the Mind set

I remember that not so long ago the meaning of terms such as meditation or mindfulness was known only to a minority, at least in the western world. Today, these words have penetrated almost all mainstream media and most of us have at least a vague idea about their meaning. I think it's great that more and more people try to live in a present moment and improve their mental health. Also one of the side effects is that those people become kinder, more relaxed and compassioned.
Introducing the new Humans set

This new set of people's silhouettes is a combination of traditional pictograms and modern icons. They come in handy anytime you need to express something concerning people's actions or activities and since they share visual language and attributes with the rest of the GLYPHICONS sets, it's great to use them together.
Basic set update 2.2
A thousand icons... My first thought was: phew, it's done! But almost immediately I realized: wait, what's "done" exactly, what does it really mean? It actually means it's a nice rounded number and that's about it. The best thing I can actually do would be just to keep calm and carry on, with no fanfare, no ceremony or silly discount, to celebrate this occasion.
